"I support the legalizing and regulating responsible usage of marijuana by adults. Having the ability to tax marijuana will provide revenue to verify the safety of the product being sold, keep the drug out of the hands of minors, and will provide funds to educate the public about responsible usage." (Candidate Survey Response)
"I support decriminalization of the simple possession of marijuana because too many people are being sent to prison for nonviolent drug charges, some for longer than violent criminals." (Candidate Survey Response)
"I support legalizing marijuana for medical purposes, which has been proven to help with pain alleviation for cancer and other illnesses as well as relief from seizures and epilepsy, among other uses. Virginians should be able to receive the care that their doctors prescribe them." (Candidate Survey Response)
"Del. Paul Krizek (D-44), who studied the issue of decriminalization as part of the State Crime Commission in 2016-2017, also favors decriminalization and eventual legalization." - (Source)
